This week, we are:

Math: fluently adding and subtracting within 100 using place value understanding (Base 10, Expanded Form, and Numberline).  We did a check-in on Friday. This will be assessed again this Friday. Students can practice strategies at home with math workbooks. We will do other check-ins throughout the week. These will be for feedback, not always graded.

Also, we will begin measuring objects in inches and feet. We will work on this measurement unit for two weeks.

Writing: concluding our informational topics and writing a first draft with all writing elements.

Reading: asking and answering questions with nonfiction texts. This will be assessed again on Friday. We will introduce logical connections in informational texts later this week.

Language Arts: exploring root words. Our spelling words of the week follow the schwa R-controlled pattern: hair, bear, flare, pair, wear, repair, cherry, barely, need, and off. 

Social Studies: describing how Cherokee and Creek American Indians used the land in Georgia. We will finish this unit with a summative task on Wednesday. We will begin a new IB unit on Thursday!

Unit of Inquiry: Living things adapt in their environment. Stay tuned for our new unit on Thursday!
